Inspired by Disney movies…
On the night of Princess Rosie’s birth, the castle was attacked by the infamous wicked witches. As valiant as the king fought, he didn’t stand a chance against the powerful sisters. By dawn the next day, the castle was in ruins and the king lay dead a few steps from the throne.
The witches rode their broomsticks up to the North Tower, where Princess Rosie lay asleep. They stood over her crib and whispered to a scarlet rose, “Princess oh princess, sleep well now. When the petals all have fallen, your time on Earth will be no more.”
